Direction: David Dhawan

Production: Big Pictures, Puja Entertainment (India) Ltd.
David Dhawan and Govinda were the No.1 team in Bollywood once; and two years ago they recreated that magic once again in ‘Partner’. But will their jodi go the distance yet again? ‘Do Knot Disturb’ a comedy of errors and affairs, is a heavily marketed movie by Big Pictures. Will this work? Let’s analyze.

The story is about a businessman - who to safeguard the secret of him having a mistress to his wife - brings in a poor waiter to act as the mistress’s boyfriend. The rich wife hires a detective to find out the truth. What follows is a comedy of errors which finally heads towards a predictable finale.

David Dhawan has mixed his Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, Saajan Chale Sasural, bits and pieces of the Tamil hit Panchathanthiram and made a cocktail out of it. There are several comic moments but not in the same league of their previous movies. Even though illogical comedies are David Dhawan’s forte, he has missed it completely this time. The pacing of the movie needs to be adjusted as it is a little

boring after the interval. With so little ideas they have tried to make it into a two and half hour movie which goes against the movie. A moral ending of the cheating husband getting his due punishment, is a welcome change.

Technically, the movie has nothing much to brag about, Cinematography by Vijay Arora is plain ordinary. Editing and music is passable. The dialogues are crude most of the times and dialogues like “thujhe Bangala Chahiye (wife) ya flat (mistress)” sounds demeaning to ladies.

Almost all the male artistes have given their best, Govinda is hilarious, and his dialogue delivery is praise-worthy. Ritesh Deshmukh proves yet again his prowess in the comedy genre. Both Miss Universe in the movie have overacted, Lara Dutta looks hot but Sushmita looks fatter than Govinda in some places. Sohail Khan is likeable in a role which fits him to a ‘T’. Rajpal Yadav goes overboard most of the times but still manages to make us laugh. Manoj Pahwa has done his bit brilliantly. Ranvir Shorey has been wasted in a role which has little scope to play with his histrionics.

With ‘Wake up Sid’ releasing on the same day and Diwali just two weekends away, it is a difficult time to prosper for ‘Do knot disturb’. The amazing run of Wanted in the single screens is going to work against the movie too. With its tremendous hype, the movie might make a solid start but from Monday onwards the downward trend is likely.

Verdict: Cocktail rehash with a moral ending
